mysteria,
Wouldn't it be cheaper to buy old aircraft carriers and convert them to condos?
At least you would have something seaworthy.  Nor only that, you would have
a built-in airport where private pilots could fly in just to crash for the night.

Looks ok, but I think they need a little more armor on the thing.
And the roofs need some parapets to protect the guards who man the
Browning M2s and rocket launchers.  Add a few missile launchers, a keel, a rudder,
some radar and three masts; the things will be ready to sail the Seven Seas.
Perhaps they need to mount a few heavy caliber mini-guns.  They will be well defended,
but I don't think I would want to be aboard when they go round the Horn.

What a brilliant idea! Not just a question of 'what you can't cure, you endure', but a creative way of 'making the best of a bad job.' Thank you for sharing this link.
